Finance Magnates on Friday learned that industry veteran Joe Conlan has left his role with INTL FCStone. Conlan was with the financial services giant for over ten years, having taken up his role as Global Head of FX Sales there in 2007.
Publicly available information on Conlan’s LinkedIn page indicates that he has taken up a new role as Managing Director at Colabyrinth Tech LLC.
While the scope of his new role remains unclear, given his wealth of industry expertise, it seems unlikely that it won’t be connected to trading in some way or another. As noted, Conlan has just left a role at INTL FCStone that saw him heading up INTL FCStone’s global FX operations.
A Long Way To INTL FCStone
Conlan started his career in the FX industry way back in 1994, working in EBS Dealing Solutions’ sales team. He spent four years with the commodities and FX trading technology provider before moving on to Congnotec – another trading solutions provider

Spending around a year and a half with the tech company as Head of North American Sales, Conlan left for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) in April of 2000. At CME, Conlan worked in the firm’s Globex FX Sales department.
After spending two years at CME, Conlan once again jumped ship, this time to Integral Development Corporation – a provider of electronic FX trading platforms. His stay at the firm was fairly short-lived.
After just over a year at the firm, working as Head of North American Sales, he moved to Currenex – a trading platform and liquidity provider. Working as SVP of Sales, Conlan left Currenex in 2006, the same year the firm was sold off to State Street.
Conlan then spent just over a year at AM Rosenthal as Global Head of eFX Trading. From there, he took up his most recent role at INTL FCStone in 2007.
